Get the job done early against St Mirren


St Mirren sat comfortably above Hamilton and Hearts in the league a week ago, but midweek wins for the bottom two sides asks big questions of the Paisley team.  Celtic might feel the pressure eased after they extended their lead at the top of the table to 13 points, but focus on picking up a point or more will be absolute for tomorrow’s visitors.  Defeat for Saints could see Ross County move six points ahead of them on Sunday.

With a visit to Ibrox next weekend, Neil Lennon would surely prefer to get the job done early against St Mirren, allowing him to rest a few legs after what is likely to be our last week of the season with two games.  If we are made to battle into the second half, as we did when St Mirren visited earlier this season, it could be a long afternoon.  Taking a 16 point lead should be sufficient incentive.

  1. Regarding Tom Rogic. He is my favourite player, though Frimpong may replace him soon.



    I’ve noticed he often doesn’t celebrate his goals (winner v Aberdeen in cup final a notable and understandable exception). Typically he gets surrounded by team mates and then cracks a smile at something that has been said.



    He celebrates more vigorously widen others score, especially if he has provided the assist.

  2. SuperSutton – Regarding Dubai rumours, it is Dubai we are talking about. Hotel parties with hookers and coke are not likely to go unnoticed by the authorities. Or have things changed there so much?


    The players are not exactly in the uber rich category where the police might be told to turn a blind eye. Nor are the players so stupid they’d risk a lifetime in jail . . . Well you get my meaning. And Dubai does hand out life sentences for it.


    I’d guess it’s made up nonsense.

    I use the soccerwaydotcom site to check out league tables and find a variety of ways to laugh the huns.





    Excellent resource for quick access to leagues, fixtures and results worldwide




  4. Tim Malone Will Tell on




    Different personalities will celebrate in different ways – some are a wee bit more shy and self conscious than others – fans read too much into this stuff imho.



    When I was a lad, my big brother pointed out to me that while other players hugged each other whenever a Celtic goal was scored, Tommy Callaghan always shook hands with his team mates.



    P.S. Not sure if Tommy would have to kick feet or bump elbows if he was playing in the current climate?

  5. “With a visit to Ibrox next weekend, Neil Lennon would surely prefer to get the job done early against St Mirren, allowing him to rest a few legs after what is likely to be our last week of the season with two games.”



    Sounds fine in theory but cannot be relied upon. St Mirren can be a tough nut to crack when they need to be.



    Let’s rest those who need it from the start. Particularly Scott Brown & James Forrest.



    My recommendation is (3-5-2): Forster, Bitton, Jullien, Ajer, Frimpong, Christie, McGregor, Rogic, Hayes, Giriffiths & Edouard



    No gambles in that starting 11 but enough to rest a couple who need it.

  6. would StMirren to stay up a wee soft spot for them fancy 3 0 tomorrow for the bhoys hate going to hamiton park is a nightmere stadium apalling think the second bottom may be ross county and ithink the would stay up in a play off h h

    SuperSutton – Regarding Dubai rumo



    That sort of thing happens a lot – Esp hookers and alcohol….& emirates are the worst. Plenty of Russian girls.




  8. So now the daily mail prints the nonsense about Everton ready to step in with 30m. bid for Edouard……whats happened to the daily retard with their scoops……..shurely Everton would contact Celtic about his position………….so whats the point in putting this rubbish up on the blog when we don’t buy these rubbish papers ??????

  9. What happened in Dubai ? is the cry among the people…



    How else to explain to fall off in results, something must have happened ?



    Glasgow wouldn’t be Glasgow without rumours. I believe, rather boringly, that nothing dramatic happened in Dubai.



    I believe a bang average side had a lot of early season success based on their high energy and fitness levels coupled with a lack of injuries.



    Come the second half of the season, opposing teams are desperate for points and close up more, they’re also fitter and more hungry with the finishing line in sight.



    Add in suspensions and injuries and we have the decline of Sevco explained. They’re an average side with a very one dimensional rookie manager.



    Of course the people don’t like the thought of their 200 million pound squad being shite so instead cry allowed: what happened in Dubai ?!

  10. SUPERSUTTON on 6TH MARCH 2020 12:23 PM



    I don’t know names. But I do have info that it involves



    – ladies of the night


    – recreational drugs


    – Colombian marching powder (which I personally distinguish from recreational)


    – pressuring younger members of the squad to join in with some or all of the above






    Is this the Sevco Dubai trip?

  11. Dubai rumours – these were all posted on Twitter last week.



    Along with :



    – Morelos having had a number of disciplinary meetings with Gerrard where he basically sat and said absolutely nothing. They’re not talking anymore.


    – Gerrard has a few “pet” players who he is unwilling/unable to discipline/manage which has led to….


    – Bullying one of one player (Barasic?) by said favourites



    Are these true? We don’t know. What we do know is 2 things :



    1. There’s gonna be a show.


    2. The Glasgow Celtic will be there.



    Here we go again – 9 In A Row again…

  12. If games are held behind closed doors then I would expect anyone with a ticket and season ticket holders to get a refund for those games. That’s enough to bankrupt some clubs.

  13. Wonder what would happen if games were to be played behind closed doors , and some club (s) said look season ticket money has gone , so you can’t get a refund and if you insist you might drive us into administration . Can we no just call it quits ….



  14. Natknow – That’s because Morelos can’t speak or understand English. He probably thought he was getting a pay rise.

  15. Oh and then in a few months time give it…


    Get your season tickets for a new exciting adventure ,blah blah ,blah …


    Step up and pay ,and hopefully see your team to play

    LOL! Indeed. And apparently his interpreter can’t understand Spanish.



    Whit a pair!




  17. FRIDAY 6TH MAY 1981




    There was no priest in last night or tonight. They stopped me from seeing my solicitor tonight, as another part of the isolation process, which, as time goes by, they will ruthlessly implement. I expect they may move me sooner than expected to an empty wing. I will be sorry to leave the boys, but I know the road is a hard one and everything must be conquered.



    I have felt the loss of energy twice today, and I am feeling slightly weak.



    They (the Screws) are unembarrassed by the enormous amount of food they are putting into the cell and I know they have every bean and chip counted or weighed. The damned fools don’t realise that the doctor does tests for traces of any food eaten. Regardless, I have no intention of sampling their tempting morsels.



    I am sleeping well at night so far, as I avoid sleeping during the day. I am even having pleasant dreams and so far no headaches. Is that a tribute to my psychological frame of mind or will I pay for that tomorrow or later! I wonder how long I will be able to keep these scribbles going?



    My friend Jennifer got twenty years. I am greatly distressed. (Twenty-one-year-old Jennifer McCann, from Belfast’s Twinbrook estate, was sentenced to twenty years’ imprisonment for shooting at an RUC man).



    I have no doubts or regrets about what I am doing for I know what I have faced for eight years, and in particular for the last four and-a-half years, others will face, young lads and girls still at school, or young Gerard or Kevin (Bobby’s son and nephew, respectively) and thousands of others.



    They will not criminalise us, rob us of our true identity, steal our individualism, depoliticise us, churn us out as systemised, institutionalised, decent law-abiding robots. Never will they label our liberation struggle as criminal.



    I am (even after all the torture) amazed at British logic. Never in eight centuries have they succeeded in breaking the spirit of one man who refused to be broken. They have not dispirited, conquered, nor demoralised my people, nor will they ever.



    I may be a sinner, but I stand — and if it so be, will die — happy knowing that I do not have to answer for what these people have done to our ancient nation.



    Thomas Clarke is in my thoughts, and MacSwiney, Stagg, Gaughan, Thomas Ashe, McCaughey. Dear God, we have so many that another one to those knaves means nothing, or so they say, for some day they’ll pay.



    When I am thinking of Clarke, I thought of the time I spent in ‘B’ wing in Crumlin Road jail in September and October ’77. I realised just what was facing me then. I’ve no need to record it all, some of my comrades experienced it too, so they know I have been thinking that some people (maybe many people) blame me for this hunger-strike, but I have tried everything possible to avert it short of surrender.



    I pity those who say that, because they do not know the British and I feel more the pity for them because they don’t even know their poor selves. But didn’t we have people like that who sought to accuse Tone, Emmet, Pearse, Connolly, Mellowes: that unfortunate attitude is perennial also…



    I can hear the curlew passing overhead. Such a lonely cell, such a lonely struggle. But, my friend, this road is well trod and he, whoever he was, who first passed this way, deserves the salute of the nation. I am but a mere follower and I must say Oíche Mhaith.

  18. Hi all,


    Not posted for years, I am in town for the game tomorrow and a City can be big when your on your own, if any of you are out this afternoon can you let me know, would be nice to meet up for a pint and chat.
